Hal McGee's Microcassette Variety Hour is a 60 minute tape recorded from June 9 through July 5, 2012. The track titles describe what you will hear! A Beatnik bongo poem live performance, Monotron improvisations, a circuit bent Casio SK-1 jam, canjo and diddley bow instrumentals, sounds from my daily life, all in their mundane lo-fi glory. The original hour-long tape has been divided into 35 separate tracks. The volume levels of some of the instrumental tracks have been boosted a bit. Also...

Moog synthesizer soundscapes, keyboards, tape manipulations and cut-ups of television programs and telephone answering machine messages. Noisy, chaotic, electronic, with occasional ambient interludes. Like all of my tape releases from this era, Five Feuilletons was created with a Fostex X-15 4-track cassette recorder. Most of the basic tracks were recorded in December 1985. Completed and mastered New Year's Day 1986. Originally released on cassette in 1986, C56, on Rick Franecki's Uddersounds...

"What a sound! The primal human rage, the emotion erupting through shards of feedback and heavy distortions must be heard as a stunning precursor to such vocal feedback artists as Masonna and Prurient." --PBK, 2010. Brash Pussy (1985) is a 30-minute massive sound destruction collage (that prefigured much of today's Noise music) that explodes into chaotic raging frenzied foaming at the mouth lust-rage. Tapes of Turkish music, synthesizers, percussion, one particularly nasty phrase...

Sadistic experimental electronic music by Dog As Master: near-silence punctuated by noise blasts. Hewn from the same mass of sonic material as Black Body, Trompeur Et Sournois by Dog As Master is a real test of your stereo equipment and your endurance. Thumbing my nose, slap in your face, a sadistic twist and pinch in sound. Over and over again, no matter how much it hurts. It is the quieter parts which make the roof-shakingly loud parts all the more painful. Originally released on cassette in...

Black Body was the third cassette tape release of Hal McGee's solo project Dog As Master. I recorded this album with a Fostex X-15 four-track cassette recorder. This is one of the best and one of my favorite Dog As Master albums, and is highly recommended as a good starting place for getting acquainted with DAM. One 36 minute tape collage, meticulously laid out in overlapping layers of shrill Moog synthesizer trills and patterns, cascades of tape cut-ups, voice choruses, and noise blasts from a...

Coffee Spleen & The Barking Dog was the second cassette tape release of my solo project Dog As Master. I recorded this album during the time that I lived at 821 North Pennsylvania Street in Indianapolis, Indiana. The music was constructed with a Fostex X-15 four-track cassette recorder. Side One of the Coffee Spleen & The Barking Dog tape is titled "Slimy Stew And Pussy Gruel", a bizarre collage with strange voices, tape manipulations, electronics, disjointed acoustic piano,...

No Specific Answer by Occupant is another highly obscure title in my catalog of releases. Very few people have actually heard this 90-minute tape over the years, but I like it a lot and I want to share it with you here. Minimalist, pulsing, drone-based electronic music that slowly changes over time. Repeating, slowly-evolving phase pattern music created with a Casio MT-11 keyboard, Moog Synthesizer, and a small amplifier - along with some experiments in feedback modulation. Not exactly ambient,...
